Abstract: Central nervous system stimulants improve symptoms of attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults (strength of recommendation: B, based on an older, inconclusive systematic review, a lesser-quality systematic review, and several newer small randomized controlled trials). Although not the focus of this question, nonstimulant medications (including buproprion, modafinil, and guanfacine) have also been studied in the treatment of ADHD in adults. Recently, atomoxetine became the only nonstimulant medication to receive approval by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of ADHD.
